Arkansas freshman TE C.J. O' Grady was arrested on suspicion of DWI on Friday and has been suspended from the team.

O'Grady was stopped early Friday morning for a non-working taillight on his scooter, at which point officers noticed signs that he might have been consuming alcohol. He was charged with a DWI as well as possession of alcohol by a minor. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound freshman was released, with a court date scheduled for September 28. He's been suspended from the Razorbacks indefinitely, pending the outcome of the case.

Arkansas senior RB Jonathan Williams said that he will "most likely" leave school for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Williams is expected to miss the 2015 collegiate season with a left foot injury. He could still theoretically take a redshirt and return to the Razorbacks next season, but this does not seem a probable path for the 6-foot, 223-pound senior. Williams opted not to split for the draft last season, when he was projected as a possible third-round pick. It's unlikely that he suits up at any point over the next four months, but the senior tried to put on an optimistic face, saying "I'm still definitely 100 percent [part of Arkansas' team], so later in the season if I'm fully cleared and I feel good about being able to play and being healthy, I'll definitely try to play."

Former USC freshman QB Ricky Town will transfer to Arkansas, according to Joe Schad of ESPN.

Town said the decision came down to Arkansas' pro-style offense. The former highly regarded recruit left USC after spending the spring and summer there. He will need to sit out the 2015 season, but Arkansas will lose Brandon Allen after this year. We all know Bret Bielema focuses on the ground game, but if Town shows promise he could help open up that offense.

Arkansas and Florida are interested in former USC freshman QB Ricky Town, according to Steve Wiltfong of 247 Sports.

Town will not be allowed to transfer to any Pac 12 program as well as all nine future opponents, including Alabama and Notre Dame. The former top recruit left USC last week after joining the Trojans earlier this year. Wiltfong reports Town's decision could be made last week.

Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema confirmed senior RB Jonathan Williams will miss the entire regular season.

It was reported yesterday Williams would miss an extended period of time after undergoing left foot surgery, but now "extended" means the entire regular season. Williams, who is likely headed for his final season with Arkansas, might return for the school's bowl game. He led the SEC in broken tackles last season with 65.

Freshman QB Ricky Town has requested a transfer form USC, according to Demetric Warren of Varsity Preps.

Head coach Steve Sarkisian has reportedly agreed, at least verbally, to release Town from his scholarship. Town was the No. 2 ranked pocket passer in the 2015 class and previously de-committed from Alabama to join USC. The quarterback enrolled early and has been practicing with the Trojans since the spring.

Arkansas senior RB Jonathan Williams will miss a significant period of time due to a left foot injury, which will require surgery.

Many considered Williams and Alex Collins the best running back tandem in the country, but now it will be the Collins show. We know Bret Bielema loves to punish opponents with oversized offensive linemen, and the duo was on track to prosper from it. Williams broke 65 tackles last season, which led the SEC.

According to CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler, Arkansas junior TE Hunter Henry has "the athleticism needed to be a mismatch in coverage."

Brugler called Henry a "well-rounded tight end" and noted that beyond his obvious receiving talents, the 6-foot-5, 250-pound junior also has shown the ability to succeed in the blocking game. "[Henry] shows a lot of the traits NFL scouts seek at the position for the next level," Brugler concluded. Last season, the big tight end caught 37 passes for 513 yards and two touchdowns while being named to the All-SEC second team.

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler wrote that Arkansas junior RB Alex Collins "needs to become more versatile on offense."

Brugler's referring to the fact that Collins caught just three passes last season. The analyst also called the junior's talent "promising" and wrote that the 5-foot-11, 206-pounder had an "explosive lower body." In 2014, he became the first Razorback runner to produce back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons since the days of Darren McFadden. Wrote Brugler, "[Collins] reminds some scouts of Isaiah Crowell when he was at Georgia." It should be fun to watch him trade off carries with Jonathan Williams throughout the season as the Razorbacks look to build off of a promising 2014 campaign.

Arkansas senior RB Jonathan Williams runs "light for his build," notes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Williams clocks in at 6-foot, 223 pounds. CBS Sports analyst Brugler wrote that this size gives him the strength to run through defenders, part of why the big man broke 65 tackles and averaged 5.6 yards a carry last season. While Brugler noted that the senior had a tendency to run too upright in 2014, he went on to say that he liked Williams' fluid feet and lateral burst.

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Arkansas junior T Dan Skipper "is a lot more than just a big body at tackle rather a surprisingly fluid athlete who can block the edge or dominate run blocking."

The analyst slapped Skipper with a Rds. 3-4 grade. We think Skipper has been done a favor by Arkansas coaches, who shifted him from LT to RT this season, not because he can't handle the left side effectively in the SEC, but because he's likely ticketed for the right side in the pros. Skipper is a nasty run blocker who sometimes has problems playing low enough to stop fluid edge rushers.

Arkansas junior RB Alex Collins dropped nine pounds this summer and now stands at 215 lbs.

"His endurance is so much better than it was a year ago," quarterback Brandon Allen said of the running back. "He's in there every play now." Collins reportedly played last season at 225 lbs. He and Jonathan Williams will be the focal point of Arkansas' offense. We like this trend of skill position players losing weight instead of gaining it.

Arkansas junior WR Keon Hatcher has "shown flashes of next level ability," observes TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Hatcher hauled in 43 receptions for a team-leading 558 yards and six touchdowns on the Razorbacks' run-first offense. The versatile Arkansas prospect also added in 112 yards rushing on 5 rushing attempts, while averaging 23.2 yards per return last season. Pauline notes that Hatcher has "average size/speed numbers but enough skill to line-up as a fifth receiver on Sunday."

Arkansas junior TE Hunter Henry is an "athletic pass catching tight end who consistently creates mismatches downfield," earning a 4th round grade from TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

Last season, the 6-foot-5, 250-pound Henry recorded 37 receptions for 513 yards and two touchdowns, earning All-SEC second-team honors and an AP All-SEC honorable mention. The Arkansas prospect is currently Mel Kiper's No. 2 underclassmen tight end prospect. Henry plays both a crucial role in the Razorbacks run game as a blocker, and is a dominant pass catcher in the passing game.

Arkansas senior T Sebastian Tretola boasts a "strong base and brute strength to pave the way for two 1,000-yard rushers in Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams," observes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"He won't be a fit for all NFL offenses, but those with power-based run schemes will find him intriguing," Reuter wrote. The 6-foot-5, 334-pound Tretola has traveled a circuitous route to draft relevancy. He spent two years at Nevada and then transferred to Iowa Western Community College in 2013 before bolting for Arkansas last year.
